DIY Bridal Shower Invitations

I just finished my cousins invitations for her bridal shower.  I think they turned out super cute - this picture here is what inspired me from Everyday Lovely:

First I printed the photo's on one sheet - two per each piece of paper.  This is a picture of my cousin and her fiance.  My cousin Jennifer took the photo - great - isn't it!

Then print the invitation part - again - two per sheet.

On the sheet with the invitation part, score straight down at 1 inch - before you cut it into the individual portions.

Then with the score portion at the bottom - cut at 5 inches. 

And then keep it at 8 1/2 inches.  Then fold over the scored part.

Then on the front part - where the picture is printed cut at 4 3/4's

By about 7 1/4.

Here are some pictures of the final ones with the measurements. 

Then I took my crop-a-dile and punched holes on each side.  I actually did about 3-4 at a time, I am all about saving time!  Then I took this string - I used waxed beading string - I had it on hand.  Worked great.  I wrapped it around a couple of times - and then tied it into a bow - or some just a knot. 

Tada!  57 done and mailed! Pretty fast, inexpensive - and personal - don't get much better than that!
